| Miho had to cheat
Nightmares help the guilt return
Conscience wakes her up

| I was the winner
Defeating the champions
"I know you're cheating"

| I wonder what the personifications of Miho's conscience would look like?
Maybe her "bad side" would look like her Avatar (did we ever decide a name for him?) especially if she cheats (or thinks she cheats).
I'm not sure about her good conscience though.

| Enemies fell by
use of the evil tactics.
now guilt riddles her.

| The taste of failure:
It is very similar
To the taste of blood.

| Pirogoeth knows
How to deal with those who cheat.
Miho cannot win.
Huh...two haikus in a row. I'm on a roll- *trips*.
>.< D'oh! Now I've lost momentum...*sigh* Oh well. Until the next haiku thread...

| Twilight rains shadows
On the fading flames of day;
Night's flood swells, and then
Ragged clouds, with sullen rage,
Catch fire from the dying sun.

| How does failure taste?
Is a hollow victory
Any less bitter?
Your blood on my blade
You believe you can't be hurt
But can you cheat death?
A choice to be made;
To win no matter the cost
Or lose with honour?
My friend is fallen
My hopes for revenge dying
My anger only grows
I will not die here
I will not let you beat me
I will not give up
The battle is done
The duel is all but over
The endgame starts now
EDIT: Realised these almost make up a series, unintentionally, so rearranged them slightly into a more suitable order. C&C welcome, BTW, since this is my first attempt at haiku poetry.
EDIT 2: Memo to self - learn to count before trying this again...

| Shudder quietly,
Dreamscapes running through my mind,
Death, so intimate.

| Dark lovely Miho
black wolf in the fold? Cheating
in those eyes?
A page turns, a
secret revealed, Miho
is now brought low.
Miho is a cheater! But that.... makes sense but that seriously hurts. Being a devoted Miho fan I hate seeing Miho tarnished. And yet ... I feel proud of her. Unconventional tactics take the world. She still got cut up though.

the kiss of death comes
yet the trapped one fights back
she will not be beat
failure comes darkly
yet the battle is not won
for one who knows truth

| Thump Thump - heart beating
I see terror in his eyes
Knife slashes deeply
Blood runs down my face
Beauty torn from chin to eyes
Drain me now, cheater

Feel free to take a sample
from the pot of pain!
-or last line as-
from the crock of pain!
(Crock is a type of big metal bowl thingy you heat food in)
from the dish of pain!
(I'm not sure which works best)

Mirror Mirror on
the wall; is harm reflected;
and honour long dead?
